Al Daniel is a Featured Columnist for Bleacher Report, focusing on the Boston Bruins and the NHL. Two of his highlights at B/R have been providing firsthand coverage of the 2012 NCAA Men's Frozen Four in Tampa, Fla. and the 2013 American Hockey League All-Star Game in Providence, R.I.

Daniel began his sportswriting endeavors upon enrolling as a sophomore at Shattuck-St. Mary's School in Faribault, Minn. There, he covered the school's elite hockey, soccer and figure skating programs for various school, town and state publications. During his senior year, he also served as a student-publicist for the school's nascent robotics program.

Among the student-athletes Daniel met and covered at Shattuck were current NHLers Jonathan Toews, Kyle Okposo and Derek Stepan, U.S. Olympians Brianna Decker, Amanda Kessel, Jocelyne Lamoureux and Monique Lamoureux and Major League Soccer players Teal Bunbury and Ben Sippola.

After graduating from SSM in 2007, Daniel moved back to his native Rhode Island to attend Providence College. Assigned to the women's hockey beat at the campus newspaper, he expanded his portfolio by serving as the Hockey East correspondent to Beyond The Dashers, a site dedicated exclusively to women's hockey news, for two years.

Between SSM and PC, Daniel covered four USA Hockey national championships, a Silver Stick tournament, the 2007 Great Lakes Invitational, two Women's Hockey East championships and the 2011 Women's Frozen Four.

Daniel's portfolio includes coverage of boys' and girls' youth hockey, youth soccer, men's and women's college hockey, high school football and minor league baseball. The many events he has attended have taken place in Minnesota, Wisconsin, Illinois, Michigan, Ontario, Pennsylvania, New York State, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Georgia and Florida.

    It is really no surprise that this building was found to have bed bugs infesting it. I mean, it is in New York city, which is pretty disgusting itself. And some of the people who work there, even if they do make decent wages, probably don't make enough to afford what is considered a "nice" place to live in New York City. Especially in midtown, of all places.Micro jobbing

    You actually make it look so easy with your performance but I find this matter to be actually something which I think I would never comprehend. It seems too complicated and extremely broad for me. I'm looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to get the hang of it!how do you seduce a girl through text

    The next time I read a blog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as much as this one. I mean, I know it was my choice to read, but I actually thought youd have something interesting to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about something that you could fix if you werent too busy looking for attention.movavi video editor 9
